    I am so sorry to hear of Shirley's passing. I got to know her at NorthCrest where I was a volunteer for many years (until Covid-19 hit). I enjoyed visiting with her, taking her to bingo, then after bingo wheeling her out to the lobby so she could see "her" birds! I also helped take her on some bowling outings to Maple Lanes where she usually kicked everyone's butt! Shirley always had a smile on her face. She will be greatly missed. My sympathy and prayers to her family.
